Trump has accused the Iranian government of backing terrorism groups, and named it as one of six Muslim-majority countries in his controversial travel ban.
"The president has made clear the U.S. expects Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorists and militants on its soil, and that Pakistan's actions in support of the South Asia Strategy will ultimately determine the trajectory of our relationship, including future security assistance", he said.
The Trump administration said in August that it was delaying sending the $255 million in aid to Pakistan.
